Food Cycler Platinum – turns your household organic waste into “gold”!

Every year an average American produces about 475 pounds (215.5 kg) of kitchen slosh. The main problem that leads to expansion in organic wastes amount is the growth of foodstuff industry and human prodigality. Manufacturers fill the shops with their goods trying to increase their sales volume. Consumers in their turn buy more than they actually can eat.

Then all the leftovers and uneaten food go to disposal sites where they dissolve and contaminate the atmosphere with manure gas and other toxic organic compounds. However, this isn’t the only thing that can happen to organic wastes, since it can be used for good as well. Exactly for this purpose Food Cycle Science Company has designed Food Cycler Platinum.

XD Design anti theft backpacks review: usability, quality, convenience

I love backpacks. They are mankind’s greatest invention. Unlike packages and cross-body bags a backpack allows to keep your hands free, it properly distributes the load over your shoulders and waist. The only thing I don’t like about rucksacks is that this isn’t what you can take to a business meeting.

Especially if you are wearing a suit and a tie. A business meeting implies having a brief case with you, however, who said that it couldn’t be as convenient as a backpack? Bobby Bizz is a transforming backpack, which makes it a perfect alternative to an ordinary backpack which is a way out in case of a business meeting.

It was quite an event when in 2016 XD Design Bobby an anti-theft backpack for everyday use appeared on the market. The backpack has a unisex design, thoughtfully made inside sections very well protected from unwanted attention – these are the properties a lot of us need during everyday commuting in a public transport, when riding bikes or traveling.

Mpow Projection Clock review

Just a few years ago I was chuckling when seeing my husband who turned on a bedside lamp, put on his glasses and then spent quite a while trying to focus on the digits on his phone screen to see the time. Now it’s not funny any more, I’m doing the same thing – I can’t see as good as before.

That’s why I decided to buy an electronic projection clock. First, as usual I spend some time surfing the Internet to find the best price for such a clock and to read the reviews. So, now I’m sharing my findings with you.
